After listening to dozens of people testify at a public hearing Monday night, Feb. 10, concerning a new set of proposed regulations for vacation rental dwellings (VRDs), the Lincoln City City Council voted to continue the hearing

Feb. 24. “Three hours is long enough for me,” said Lincoln City Mayor Dick Anderson, as he asked the Council to continue the hearing. A standing-room-only crowd filled the Lincoln City Council chambers for the much-anticipated VRD hearing. About a dozen people had

The search for a new president at the Oregon Coast Community College (OCCC) is expected to move ahead following a work session and a public and executive session of the board and search screening committee at 4 p.m. Feb. 19 at the OCCC Central County Campus, 400 S.E. College Way, in Newport. “We have been at this since last fall,” said Jon Carnahan, Oregon Coast Community College search consultant. “We held a number of community and staff forums to identify the qualities and qualifications we are looking for in a president.” Carnahan said two main qualifications emerged during the public forums. “We are looking for a leader who has experience working in a small community and will be involved in the community and college,” said Carnahan. “But the big issue is accreditation. The college needs to be independently accredited and the new president will need to help lead the way.” Carnahan said OCCC

Folks in Lincoln City and along the Oregon Coast are waiting to see what Mother Nature serves up next following last weekend’s ice and snowstorm. As the storm moved across the state, Portland, Salem and Eugene were walloped with several inches of snow shutting down schools, businesses and triggering hundreds of traffic accidents. The ice and snow throughout Lincoln County forced Lincoln County School

District officials to cancel classes Thursday, Feb. 6, and Friday, Feb. 7. The storm caused some businesses, including the Tanger Factory Outlet Center in Lincoln City, to close on Friday. But the ice didn’t stop Gail Kimberling and her staff from opening the Lincoln City Community Center early Friday morning. “We had a few people come in as soon as we opened because their pipes were frozen and they were able to take a shower here and get their day going,” said Kimberling. “There See STORM, Page A7

I can’t even express how generous people were and how supportive they were of the walk, the fundraiser, etc. I think, during the entire walking from L.A., I only met one person who was pessimistic. That person stands out in my mind because he was the only one along the way who didn’t think we’d make it. If I had to note one thing, about me personally, that I learned was that my thoughts determine my day and thus my life. I think I was partially aware of this prior to leaving. But, when you’re on the road every day for many hours and the only thing you have to do is walk and think, you begin to reassess what you’re letting roam freely in your mind. You begin to realize that your physical strength is really only equal to your mental strength. Cliche, perhaps, but true. I think this is why my sister is so strong; she always has a smile on her face regardless.

West Coast walker completes long journey Jeremiah Ray is back in his home in New England and planning to walk again. The News Guard and thenewsguard.com brought you the story of Ray and his walk from Los Angeles through Lincoln County to Seattle. We shared the story with our valued readers and web visitors on Jan. 22. The News Guard followed Ray as he passed through Newport and Lincoln City delivering his special message to those that he met. “I am doing this walk for my sister and to raise awareness and funds for the Amputee Coalition of America,” said Ray. “So I am walking for those who can’t.” Ray’s sister, Rebecca, lost her leg in 2012 in an abovethe-knee amputation. Ray said he got the idea for his walk and has been inspired by his sister’s strength. Now, we have the next

chapter in Ray’s incredible journey. He and his companion, Gustavo Krause, reunited in Belfair, Wash. after being separated during the long walk. The two arrived safe and sound in Seattle on Super Bowl Sunday. The following is a conversation with Ray: NEWS GUARD: What did it feel like to reach your destination? Ray: I was anxious to make it to Seattle, as this was the end-point of the walk... though, to be honest, I wasn’t ready to be done walking. After arriving a wave of exhaustion hit me – it was as if the tiredness from the 70+-day trek finally caught up with me, but I still felt like moving, like walking, like continuing. NEWS GUARD: What did you learn about yourself during the journey? Ray: It wasn’t necessarily about me, but about people; people, as a collective, are good, giving and caring.

NEWS GUARD: Will you do another such walk? Ray: Yes, definitely. Maybe continue where I left off. Not necessarily in Seattle, but with the fundraiser and the story about my sister and how she has inspired me. Walking is therapeutic, a great way to spread the word about a cause or an idea, and an excellent way to meet people and see parts of the world you might just pass right through should you be traveling by car, etc. NEWS GUARD: How much did you earn for the group? Ray: We raised $3,658 (http://www.crowdrise.com/ FootstepsForRebecca). I had this feeling that we might not reach the goal of $15k. Though, as I have tried to express to many people, some of whom see money as the be-all/end-all of life, that this wasn’t the only point of the walk. There were many goals: geographically, monetarily, etc. The real goal was to show

my sister how her strength is awe-inspiring. It took a lot of physical and emotional strength to walk over 1,400 miles, though I see this as miniscule compared to the obstacles that my sister, Rebecca, has faced and will continue to face. If I wanted to just raise money, I could have stayed home on the East Coast, worked any job and donated a percentage of my income to the cause, to the Amputee Coalition. This would have been fine and certainly honorable. However, I wanted to challenge myself, to, quite literally, take footsteps for my sister, to mirror her courage and will. In

this sense, we reached the goal and far surpassed it. Every day I met people who would ask why I was walking. They gave me things that you can’t quantify: a handshake, a few parting words of encouragement or advice, etc. After meeting these people, when I would carry on my way and they on theirs, I knew that they knew of Rebecca and how she inspired me. I knew that, because of someone they will never meet, they were questioning what it means to be strong. The News Guard will keep you posted on Ray’s next walking adventure.

NLFR serves up ham dinner

JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countrymedia.net

North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 personnel will be dispatched to extinguish growling stomachs while promoting public safety Sunday, Feb. 16, at its 57th annual Ham Dinner at Taft High 7-12. “There have been 700 to 2,000 people depending on the year, so it’s quite the community event,” NLFR Capt. Jim Kusz said. Money raised from the annual event, scheduled from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at 3780 Spyglass Ridge Drive, will be allocated by NLFR’s volunteer association for purchases it deems necessary to enhance the emergency services area fire crews are able to provide. “They say, it would be nice to have X, Y and Z, or JEREMY C.

A man in his 70s was telling me when he was a 6-year-old boy living in a large city, he would take the city bus downtown, change buses and walk a couple of blocks to his music lesson. After the lesson was over, he would walk a couple of blocks, take another bus to his family’s lake house, where he would play with cousins or whoever was there, before taking another bus to go home. And no one gave a second thought to that at the time. That’s a stark contrast from the 6-year-old girl telling me she was scared when her elementary school was in lockdown because of the shooting nearby. This girl was living in fear, and I quickly assured her that the police were doing a good job keeping everyone safe, as were her teachers and staff. Today, we would not dream of allowing a 6-year-old old navigate the city by themselves without adult supervision. So, what’s

changed? Are things getting better or worse? According to the many passages in the Bible, things will get much worse until Christ returns. Which in some ways is a little depressing. For example, in 2 Timothy 3:1-4, the apostle Paul writes to Tim, the man he is mentoring, saying, “You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.” Sound familiar? It sounds like a news script.

scriptures in the Bible, one for every day of the year. Imagine a world with no fear, no school lockdowns, and perfect peace. One of my favorite scriptures from Isaiah 26:3 is, “He (God) will keep you in perfect peace who’s mind is fixed on him.” With the playbook in hand for the final quarter, my hope is in the Lord. Psalm 33:22 says, “Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone.” While I desire to make Lincoln County a better place and aim to give my life to that cause, my hope rests on one thing, and it is not the Super Bowl championship, although the Seahawks were amazing. My hope is in God. He is the hope of the world. So how are we to live in such difficult days? We know from Ephesians 5:15-16 that we are to live with wisdom, “Be very careful, then, how you live — not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”

Matthew 24:12-13 says we are to stand firm and persevere, “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” To live without fear is difficult, but there are 365

Voices of Lincoln County VRD opponents consider this I am writing regarding the ongoing VRD issue. I would like the people who are against VRDs to consider this: 1. VRD’s bring much need revenue and jobs to

our community. 2. If I cannot rent out my VRD (VRD since 1996) I will be forced to monthly rent it. It has five bedrooms. My daughter at OSU has rented many times in houses like this in the past four years. Where you rent to 5 single people to maximize your rental income .... with that

comes LOTS of their friends to visit. With a monthly tenant I have zero ability to control parking and if there is a noise / garbage problem it could take months to evict them. A bad VRD I can remove immediately - pack your bags and you are out! So which do you want to live next to? A well managed

Sheriff’s Tips Information network benefits crime victims By Sheriff Dennis Dotson

Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) is the nation’s leading automated victim notification solution and is available in Oregon. VINE allows crime victims across the country to obtain timely, reliable information about criminal cases and the custody status of offenders. Victims often wish to know the status of an offender that is in the system. Until VINE, it was difficult for officers to provide accurate information to victims. VINE makes information about the booking and release of inmates housed in

county jails and state prisons available to victims at no cost, over the telephone or web. Offender information is collected automatically in near real-time from jail and prison booking systems. Crime victims can access offender information, any time of the day or night, simply by making a telephone Sheriff Dennis Dotson call at 1-877-0R4-VINE (1877-674-8463) or by accessing the web at www.vinelink. com. Victims can call to inquire whether an offender is held in jail as well as the facility’s location. Users also can register to be notified immediately of a change in the inmate’s status, such as a release or

Russian, Mandarin Chinese, and others, so victims from many ethnicities have access to the system. A free smart phone app is available to iPhone and Droid users called “MobilePatrol.” One of the features of this app is access to the VINE service so you can be notified on your smart phone or iPad. The app is available from the Droid “Play Store” and Apple “App Store”. Once the app is downloaded, select Oregon as your state and then select Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. The VINE feature and other features will appear as you scan through the pages of the app.

escape. When a notification is triggered, VINE automatically calls the number or numbers the victim has provided. Calls continue until

the victim acknowledges the call by entering a PIN. VINE supports multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Vietnamese,

Health Matters by Samaritan Health Services

Show your heart some love and embrace a heart-healthy diet There are a number of ways to improve your heart health and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease – exercise and weight control, managing your cholesterol levels, blood pressure and stress and, of course, avoiding smoking. Key among these factors is the food you eat. It’s not always easy to change your eating habits, but the payoff is worth it. Consider these tips as you embrace a heart-healthy diet: Watch portion sizes – Understand your caloric needs and eat meals that fuel you, not stuff you. Choose low-calorie, nutrient-rich foods over processed or fast foods. Your heart, and your waistline, will be better off for it. Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits – In addition to being great sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber, many fruits and vegetables contain heart disease fighting substances. Keep carrots, celery or apples around for snacks. Create dinners that feature vegetables as the main dish.

Enjoy whole grains – Also a great source of fiber and nutrients, whole grains contribute to heart health. Start the day with a hot bowl of oatmeal, substitute whole wheat for white bread, and try out a new whole grain like quinoa.

Indulge, once in a while – A piece of dark chocolate or a glass of red wine can be a heart-healthy part of your diet. Learn more about heart health and what you can do to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by taking a free online assessment from Samaritan Heart & Vascular Institute at samhealth.org/heartage.

Avoid unhealthy fats and cholesterol – This is important to reduce your blood cholesterol and lower your risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack and stroke. Limit use of butter, margarine and shortening and trim the fat off meat. Choose monounsaturated fats, such as olive oil or canola oil, or polyunsaturated fats, found in nuts and seeds. Eat low-fat protein – Enjoy lean meat, poultry, fish, low-fat dairy products and egg whites, as well as tofu, beans, peas and lentils for the protein you need, without the fat. Ditch the salt shaker – Too much salt in your diet can contribute to high blood pressure. Also read labels and watch the amount of salt in processed foods.

It’s time to get SCREENed Nearly 12,000 people will be diagnosed and 4,000 people will die this year from cervical cancer – a cancer that is primarily caused by a common virus, the human papillomavirus (HPV). While most adults are exposed to this virus in their lifetimes, the body often clears the virus, with no harm done. However, for some individuals, the virus leads to cervical cancer. In rare cases, high-risk strains may also lead to cancer of the mouth, anus, head or neck – which are found in both men and women. The good news is that a vaccine will stop HPV from developing into cervical cancer about 70 percent of the time. The HPV vaccine is approved for females and males ages 9 to 26 years of age. However, it is most routinely given between the ages of 11 and 12. If you have a family member or friend in this age group, talk to them about getting vaccinated – it could save their life.

or family member who is due for this life saving screening, encourage them to get screened. For women who have no means to pay for this exam, contact the State of Oregon’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Program at 1-877-255-7070. If you are a woman of 40 years or older and are uninsured or underinsured, you may qualify to receive free mammograms and Pap screenings for breast and cervical cancer through this program. For more information, talk to your doctor. Information provided by the Mid-Willamette Valley SCREEN program, a volunteer-led movement in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties to get the message out to our communities that early detection saves lives. Interested in volunteering? Visit the SCREEN program at samhealth.org/SCREEN.

Another way to stop cervical cancer is to catch it early. Cervical cancer is one of the few cancers that can be screened for, caught early and treated early – when survival rates are the highest. The screening for cervical cancer is called a Pap test. This test should be performed beginning the age of 21, and repeated every three years. If payment is an issue, the federal Vaccines for Children Program will provide free vaccines to those under age 19 who qualify. For more information and availability, contact your county health department. Most cervical cancers are found in women who have not had a Pap test, or who have not had one in five or more years. If you are due for a Pap test, or have a friend

Future of former school property uncertain It once stood proud and true, but today the former Taft Elementary School in south Lincoln City is just a memory. The building demolition has been completed and the Lincoln County School District is now in the process of deciding the fate of the vacant lot where the school once stood. “We are evaluating to see what the property is worth and we are still waiting final approval from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality,” said Rich Belloni, Lincoln County School District director of support services. Belloni said the school site had also housed a school bus garage about 30 years ago and there were fuel storage tanks buried at the site. “At some point, the fuel tanks were removed and whoever took the tanks out didn’t go through the proper channels,” said Belloni. “So we have been working over the past few years to get that site cleaned up.” The district has spent $12,000 placing erosion controls and replanting the site. Belloni said there has been no decision yet by the school district about what could be done with the

property, but said there are no plans by the district to build any structures or use the 6.5 acre site for athletic fields. “No, we will not because the site is in the tsunami inundation zone,” said Belloni. “At some point the school board may decide to sell the property. We are not sure how much it is worth at this time. The main goal is to get it cleaned up and finish with DEQ.” Belloni said a decision about the future of the site could come be made later this year.

Obituaries

William “Bill” Crouch was born January 7, 1920 in Raceville, NY to Allen James Crouch and Pearl Grover Crouch. He died February 5, 2014 in Woodburn. At the age of 16 he entered the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCCs) and spent time working in Nevada and California, sending $15 a month home to his family. In 1940 he met and married the love of his life, Gladys Dorothy Martin. They made their home not far from where they met, in Cavendish, Vermont. In 1943 Gladys gave birth to their son, William, who only lived two hours. In 1948 they moved to Oregon, settling in the Molalla area in a little settlement called Shady Dell. In 1953 Gladys gave birth to Rita, their only living child, and their family was complete. Bill spent time as a foundry worker, taxi driver, and a furniture warehouse worker on his way to the job he truly loved, working as a foreman for the Oregon State Highway Department (currently known as ODOT). He retired after 26 years, and joined Gladys in their antique shop and later estate and garage sale businesses. He was a “life-member” of the Odd Fellows I.O.O.F. and Rebekah’s. He

enjoyed rock-hounding, fishing, card playing and being a “caller” for some of the local bingo games. He was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather and greatgrandfather. His motto was, “It’s either laugh or cry, you might as well laugh!” He was preceded in death by all his siblings, and his wife Gladys (2005). He is survived by: daughter, Rita Reedy, Lincoln City; granddaughter Theresa “Tess” Hudson-Adams (Eric), Lincoln City; grandson Paul Reedy, Oregon City; great-granddaughters Athena Hudson, Wednesday Reedy and Cassandra “Cassie” Hudson, Lincoln City; and nephews and nieces from Alaska to New York. As he made us promise there would be no sadness but we could throw him a party, a celebration of life will be held at the Lincoln City community center on Saturday February 15th from 2 to 4. Please come prepared for a potluck, music, and sharing the love and joy he treasured.

Students using new science lab at OCCC The newly renovated science laboratory at the Oregon Coast Community College’s (OCCC) North campus in Lincoln City is now in use by students enrolled in Biology 102. The students are investigating principles of genetics, natural selection, cell division and animal behavior. During the 2012 Legislative session, $9.8 million was made available to the 17 Oregon community colleges for capital construction projects. OCCC’s portion, approximately $273,000, was used on two projects. The South County facility in Waldport was modified to better accommodate the focus on Allied Health instruction. Instruction in Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Medical Assistant and Nursing Assistant occurs throughout the week at the facility. Funding also enabled the installation of lab benches, complete with sinks, hot

and cold water and natural gas spigots that provide flexibility to teach different disciplines of science, including geology, chemistry, biology, oceanography and physics. Additional equipment and supplies will be purchased through these funds to enhance the learning experience of students. “With the new science facility open, I’ve been granted the opportunity to take a vigorous and engaging biology class through OCCC,” said Samantha Raines, a Taft High School senior and OCCC sophomore. “Having a laboratory setting provides students with an opportunity to learn how to use the space efficiently and safely,” said Bruce Koike, OCCC interim president. “The concepts of how to organize the work space, conducting safe laboratory procedures and cleaningup afterwards are skills that students should develop in

this setting,” “When it comes to learning science, hands-on activities are invaluable to bringing alive what seems to be abstract concepts, as well as reinforcing concepts discussed in lecture,” said Hui Rodomsky, biology instructor. “Working in a lab of this quality allows the students to be more proficient with scientific methods and procedures.”

The ice storm in Lincoln City was also dangerous for some. “We are treating many fractures and sprains,” said Emily Nelson, an emergency room worker at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital. “We urged people to stay home and don’t even venture out to get the mail until the conditions got better.” Police agencies responded to numerous traffic crashes related to the icy conditions in Lincoln County. Most were non-life threatening crashes. Oregon Department of Transportation crews worked around the clock to clear ice and snow from outlying roads leading to Portland and the Willamette Valley, while city and county public works crews cleared local roads. At the National Weather Service in Portland, hydrologist Andy Bryant said all the snow for last week’s storm still won’t ease the lack of snow packs and summer water needs, such as irrigation water, around the state. “It will take many more storms to bring us back to normal,” he said.

OCCC is in negotiations with Portland Community College for a new accreditation contract. OCCC is the last remaining community college in Oregon that isn’t independently accredited. Carnahan said the independent accreditation is important to the college, and the community. “It gives the college a lot more local control,” he said. “When you are dependent on another college, you have to follow their policies, their procedures, and the programs that they offer. Being independent, you have more flexibility to meet the local needs of the community.” Carnahan said the

OCCC Board voted last fall to seek independent accreditation, but that process takes from five to seven years. The pay for the new college president is based on a salary survey conducted by Carnahan of all the community colleges in Oregon. The survey shows OCCC’s presidential pay and benefits ranging between $120,000 to $125,000, which is at the low range compared to other community colleges. “That could create issues for some of the candidates because they might consider that too low,” said Carnahan. “However, we are trying to be competitive and match salary and benefits to what other small community colleges in Oregon are paying.” During the Feb. 19 meetings, the Board is expected to receive a final-

ist list of candidates from the 19-member screening committee. Carnahan said the community would have a chance to meet the finalists. “Following interviews before the Board in executive session, we will conduct two forums for each candidate,” said Carnahan. “One forum will be public and the other will be for the college students and staff. The Board will take comments from the two forums and make its final selection.” Carnahan said dates and times of the finalists’ forums have yet to be scheduled. A final candidate selection by the OCCC Board could come in April. The new president will fill the post vacated by Patrick O’Connor who retired in 2012. Bruce Koike has been serving as the college’s interim president.

City Proposes Limits on the Number of Days VRDs can be Rented City’s VRD Consultant Urges City Officials to Respect Recommendations of Consensus Group Rental to Visitors is the Primary Use for Most VRDs

Economic Impacts of VRD Laws

Guests Praise Area VRDs

The consultant the city hired in 2012 to create a Consensus Group out of a diverse group of local citizens, weighed in on recent actions by city officials last week, stating:

A 2011 study by the National Association of Realtors discusses the impacts of VRD over-regulation. Here are some quotes….

Guests often write internet reviews about their experiences staying in Lincoln City VRDs. This is how they describe their visits and our city….

“I am hopeful that the City will conclude that a half-year public process that produced a high degree of consensus is a better way to resolve the issues associated with VRDs that by ignoring the stated will of the great majority.” Meanwhile the City Council & staff continue to propose new laws that directly contradict some recommendations of the Consensus Group, while ignoring others. Two of the more important recommendations continue to generate controversy.

Artificial Limits on How Often VRDs can Rent to Tourists Consensus Group recommendations supported allowing VRDs in “Yes” zones to rent as often as they want, just like they always have. City officials are now arguing that renting VRDs is an “Accessory Use” of a property — and to them this means there should be limits on the number of nights available to rent. Under this argument, VRDs would only be able to rent somewhere between 30 and 180 days per year. VRD owners point out that the typical VRD in the city rents for 220 days each year, and using these homes as rentals is really their Primary Use, not an Accessory Use. They also point out that city-imposed restrictions on nights available will reduce tourism and tax revenues. Tourist lodging taxes generate over 20% of the city’s revenue. Is it the city’s job to dictate how many nights are available at VRDs? Should guests be turned away, when rental homes are available. Would the City Council do this to hotels and motels?

Limits on Ownership The Consensus Group also recommended lifting a restriction that says that no one can own more than one VRD — a move that would boost real estate investment, tourism and city revenues. The city has excluded this recommendation from all version of its proposed laws so far. People who want to buy a Lincoln City home, fix it up and rent it to tourists, will be told that they can’t. Meanwhile, demand for VRDs by tourists continues to climb nationwide, and the city is spending money to promote area tourism. Limiting the availability of VRDs directly contradicts the city’s own efforts to bring more tourists into the city.

Over-regulation Hurts In a 2011 study, the National Association of Realtors said… “The potential for over-regulation (of VRDs) is a legitimate concern, particularly when a proposed ordinance is driven by the vocal complaints of one or more permanent residents about their negative experiences with nearby short-term renters. Residents often complain that short-term rentals are inherently incompatible with residential neighborhoods and demand an outright prohibition against the use. Elected officials, in an effort to please their constituency, may acquiesce to those demands without carefully considering … what regulatory approach is best-suited to addressing the ... needs of the community.”

Many would say that the above statement could apply to our city, where local VRD laws work directly against the city’s efforts to bring new visitors into the area. LCVHA believes that properly managed VRDs offer the city and its residents an opportunity to expand tourism and support area businesses that doesn’t cost anywhere near what other tourism development efforts cost. Simply put — reducing available VRD lodging options accomplished nothing.

 ... tourists who become aware of the new restrictions may perceive them as being ... evidence of an anti-tourist sentiment among full time residents of the community … discouraging tourists from vacationing in that community.  Local economies that lean heavily on the tourist economy are more susceptible to the potential impacts of short-term rental restrictions. (There can be a) negative effect on the viability and success of restaurants, retail establishments, and other local businesses that provide services to tourists.

 We spent a fantastic week… Ages 2,10,12,22,33,41,48,and 63. Sand castles to shopping...it was all good. Thank you. Johnsons & Culvers  What a beautiful home… Loved the tax free shopping at the outlet mall just a few minutes from the house. Will definitely be back. Hasanthi, Valencia, CA  … beautifully decorated … in a great location near the beach, shopping, restaurants and the casino. We will definitely return. Lesley, Portland

 (Bans and regulations can result) in a substantial number of homes being sold or foreclosed upon (and) flood the market, causing property values to fall and remain depressed for a period of time.

 … family members checked out nearby attractions ... we had a great meal at "The Mist" ... We would love to come again and would definitely recommend this to others. Mim, Junction City

 ... limitations on the use of properties that short-term rental housing restrictions impose may cause property values in the district or neighborhood to decrease.

 I would recommend this property ... We played golf at the Salishan, caught the bus to the casino a block away from the rental property ... and we ate at the Chinese place ... Portland

 In some cases, the perceived need for a short-term rental ordinance may be based solely on anecdotal evidence about the alleged problems caused by … tenants rather than on documented evidence that ... tenants are causing problems.

 Your home was beautiful … We enjoyed long walks on the beach. A trip to the outlet Mall and the Casino … We are looking forward to a return visit. Joy, Portland

 Communities … should be encouraged to adopt general regulations rather than to single out short-term rental properties for regulation.  It is well established that a land use regulation that is excessively restrictive may constitute a taking of property for which compensation must be paid under the state constitution and the 5th & 14th Amendments to the Constitution.

 This is the 4th or 5th time we have stayed at the beach house and every time has just been great … Short walk to beach access Shops and the Casino nearby. Brenda R., Portland  The property was very clean and maintained. The owners provided excellent customer service. We ate at the Inn at Spanish Head... We also headed into Lincoln City and enjoyed the little shops and lunch at a Thai food restaurant. Beaverton Families and friends return year after year to Lincoln City VRDs, and recommend their favorite vacation destinations and VRDs to friends and neighbors.

recommended ordinances were developed by a City Consensus Committee following review of public concerns about the VRDs. The Commission, however, voted not to impose criminal penalties for willful operation of an illegal VRD. Many who testified during the hearing opposed additional regulations. Joy Wilson, Oregon Beach Vacations Lincoln City manager, brought several of her employees and property owners to the meeting to express concerns about the proposed regulations. “The money generated by VRDs is substantial,” said Wilson. “Anytime that any VRD is not rented, it effects my employees. If access to a home is limited, than the workers are losing income and they will have trouble putting food on the table.” Wilson urged the Council not to place a cap on the VRDs. “Don’t put a cap on a clean and viable industry,” she said. “My fear is that these regulations will limit our employee’s ability to earn supportable wages. I encourage you not to limit the number of days. I have people that need to work.” Real Estate agent John Iwamara told the Council the additional restrictions are not needed. “With Lincoln City having some of the most restric-

following Lincoln City resident Jerry Warner’s presentation critical of the City’s spending habits. City Mayor Dick Anderson cautioned those attending: “This is your first warning. You don’t need to clap and applaud. I expect you to sit quietly. This is not a rally or a sporting event. It is a business meeting.” Following quick action by the Council on other agenda items, Anderson opened the public hearing to review the proposed vacation rental dwellings (VRDs) regulations. He read a lengthy outline of the proposals and the process for public testimony. Anderson directed Lincoln City Community Development Director Richard Townsend to give the Council the latest VRD report. Following Townsend’s outline of the proposals, he briefed the Council on the VRD regulation recommendations made by the Lincoln City Planning Commission following its Feb. 4 meeting. The Commission recommended a Yes / No Zone system to better regulate the VRDs. The system would allow VRDs in specific locations but not in others. The

tive VRD regulations in the country, I questions why the Council is so concerned about VRDs when there are so few complaints,” he said. “I encourage you to find a solution that welcomes tourists and encourage investors in our city. Present a plan that is uncomplicated and fair and allows business to grow.” “We need to be strong so that people support our city year round,” Gordon Walker said. “Please listen to the silence from the people that moved away from the city because of VRDs.” As testimony swayed from the specific proposals, Anderson cautioned those testifying: “We got the message on the economy, but tell us what you feel about theses ordinances. Please read them if you haven’t already.” Suzanne Young lives in Wilsonville and owns a VRD in Lincoln City. “I ask that the Council conduct a full economic impact prior to proceeding with any new regulations, she said. “I have not seen one.” Following the meeting, Councilor Henry Quandt summed up the testimony. “It was all over the road,” he said. “So, I want to wait to hear what people have to say at our next meeting. I don’t know where I stand on this yet.” Quandt acknowledged that the VRD debate has

divided the community. “For a long time there were no standards set and there was a lack of enforcement,” he said. Councilor Chester Noreikis said most of the people at the hearing wanted the Council not to add additional regulations and allow Lincoln City to be open to the VRDs. “There are residents who feel that the City is responsible to honor the R1 zone (residential) and there are residents, I presume, who feel that the economy is more important than honoring the residential zone,” said Noreikis. This will be a very hard decision for the Council to make, so we won’t rush it.” Anderson said he was concerned that several of the people who testified argued about the economic impact of the regulations, rather than voicing their opinion one way or the other for a specific proposal. “Here are seven people, the Council, faced with tough decisions and we are trying to work through these proposals,” said Anderson. “That’s why I was asking questions of those who testified, trying to get them to

holding his decision about the VRDs until he hears more testimony. “We need to hear from everybody,” he said. “But what I am hearing so far is that most people don’t want additional regulations. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean more regulation isn’t worthwhile. It needs to be crafted in a way so that it is not harmful to the community’s economy, to the people who have invested in the VRDs, and to the safety of those that use the VRDs.” The VRDs have been the center of debate for several years in Lincoln City. Over the past year, the Council and Planning Commission have been reviewing proposed VRD regulations recommended by a Consensus Committee to balance public safety, livability of neighborhoods and economic growth. See results of The News Guard’s online poll at thenewsguard.com asking if the City should set up VRD regulations.

be specific about what they liked, or didn’t like, about the proposed regulations.” Anderson said he didn’t believe a call by some for an economic impact analysis of the VRDs was necessary. “All through our previous public meetings, people came in telling us the same economic story and they rolled in all their employees,” said Anderson. “The Consensus Committee heard all that too, and I didn’t hear the Committee request an economic impact study.” Anderson also said the Council wound not rush a decision. Councilor Roger Sprague said those who brought up the question about why the Council is even looking at regulating the VRDs when there is no problem don’t understand the issue. “This all began because there were a number of property owners who were unhappy with the VRDs causing problems such as noise, parking and litter, in their neighborhoods,” said Sprague. “That was really the initiative of this whole process.” Sprague said he was with-

Local man escapes house fire Passing skateboarders sound alert

JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

A Lincoln City man escaped safe and sound after fire erupted from the chimney and spread to the attic of his house shortly before 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10. When North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 fire crews arrived, they found smoke pouring from roof of the onestory home at 1334 N.E. Keel Ave., about one block east of Highway 101. “Some boys on skateboards banged on my door and said there was smoke coming from the roof,” said Terry Novak. “I had a good fire going and all I can figure is the chimney got plugged up.” Novak was able to get out of the house and tried to put the fire out.

“I went and hooked the hose up outside and to tried put the fire out, but the hose blew apart,” he said. “So I called 911.” Fire crews were able to put out the fire within about 15 minutes after they arrived. The crews used large fans to clear smoke from the house. NLFR Capt. Jim Kusz said the fire was limited to the attic. “There is pretty extensive damage to the ceiling and some smoke damage,” said Kusz. The cause of the blaze is still under investigation. The eastbound lane of 14th Street at Keel Avenue was blocked off for about 45 minutes while emergency vehicles were on the scene of the fire.

Paws on the Sand to close after 21 years JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countrymedia.net

The Internet has taken the bark out of Paws on the Sand pet store in Lincoln City. Progress has finally caught up with local pet store owner Patty Morgan, who will close her business after nearly 21 years of operation on Highway 101 in downtown Lincoln City. “I cannot do another three years like the last three years, the last three years have been just horrendously bad,” Morgan said of her decision to shut down operations at the end of March. Mostly to blame, in Morgan’s estimation, is the Internet and the ability of pet owners to readily shop, and, in many cases, save

online. “My best guess is that what’s hurting me most in Internet sales,” Morgan said. “I hear all the time, things like, ‘I just got that on the Internet. I didn’t know you had them.’ So, the things I was able to sell here, both to locals and tourists, people already have gotten on the Internet.” Morgan said her main sales have been pet food and treats, but selling nutritional dog food doesn’t pay the bills. “You don’t make money on those items,” she said. “The profit margin on those is much lower than everything else, and everything else isn’t selling, so …” Morgan said the recent opening of the much larger Mini Pet Mart down the

street on Highway 101 wasn’t much of a factor in her decision. Another local pet store, Coast Pet Center in the Safeway shopping center, also closed recently. “It didn’t help, don’t get me wrong,” she said, “but [business] was way down before they came in.” Rather than negotiate another three-year lease, Morgan said she felt it best to move on. “What I will miss mostly are my customers and consulting on nutrition and animal behavior because that’s what I specialize in,” she said. Morgan said she is working with the Lincoln City Feed Store at 3219 N.W. Highway 101 in transferring her customers and their animals’ nutritional needs.

Taft rebounds strong, shoots poorly in defeat JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countrymedia.net

It’s easy to like an offensive possession where you get numerous rebounds, but not if you come away without any points. Such was the case Tuesday, Feb. 4, at Cascade High School, where the Taft High boys basketball team fell 53-33 despite throwing its weight around inside, where it lacks height but still outrebounded the Cougars in an Oregon West Conference game. “We had one possession with four offensive rebounds and missed all five attempts and all were good shots,” first-year Taft coach Scott Henderson said. Competing virtually always with a shorter lineup, fewer players and little experience, the Tigers fell to 5-12 overall and 0-5 halfway through the conference season with games scheduled Tuesday, Feb. 11,

at Stayton (past deadline; see thenewsguard.com for results), Friday, Feb. 14, at Philomath, and Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Central. “We played really hard,” Henderson said. “We ended up outrebounding them for the entire game, which was awesome.” Taft couldn’t overcome poor shooting, however. The Tigers shot a paltry 15 percent from the floor and 40 percent from the foul line.

“That ended up hurting us,” Henderson said. Cascade’s victory helped lift it into a share of the league lead with Central and Philomath at 4-1 entering this week’s play.

Swim scrimmage Tigers remain winless in league play JIM FOSSUM JFossum@countrymedia.net

The Taft High swim team held an informal tune-up for districts in the form of a scrimmage with rival Newport Tuesday at the Lincoln City Community Center pool. “We did some fun things like 100 IMs instead of 200s and 50 flys instead of 100,” Taft coach Lissa Parker said. “All the relays were mixed boys and girls and the kids could swim in three.” The Cubs defeated the Tigers 312-226 in the practice meet with a 2210 advantage in participants. “So, the scores reflect that, but it was a good way to get ready for Districts and still have some

fast swims,” Parker said. Among Taft’s participants was Eli Shott, the Tigers’ lone senior, who was recognized by his school and teammates and responded by improving his times in winning the 50-meter freestyle (28.36) and finishing second in the 100-meter breaststroke (1:24.38). Five other Taft swimmers lowered their times in the scrimmage, including winners Lizeth Cortes and sophomores Justin Delfin and Madison Garding. Freshman Charles Sims made the most marked improvement, swimming nearly 13 seconds faster than his previous-best effort in the 400-meter free.

The Taft High girls basketball team fell to 0-5 in Oregon West Conference play Tuesday, Feb. 4, with a 63-23 defeat at Cascade. The Tigers’ Friday night game at Stayton was postponed by the weather until Tuesday, Feb. 11 (past deadline; see thenewsguard.

com for results). Taft, 5-13 on the season, is scheduled to play Friday, Feb. 14, at home against Philomath and Tuesday, Feb. 18, at Central. The Tigers conclude their season with road and home games the following week against Newport and Cascade, respectively.

Beach treasures highlight Antique Week JEREMY C. RUARK jruark@countrymedia.net

As part of Lincoln City’s annual Antique Week from Feb. 7-17, nearly 500 floats and pieces of glass art will be placed along 7.5 miles of beach at Lincoln City, including 300 vintage Japanese glass floats. These antique floats represent the original glass floats that were used by Japanese fisherman, which would wash up on the Oregon Coast and became highly

sought collector’s items. “We work with a local contact that has a source out of Alaska for the antique Japanese floats,” said Scott Humpert, Lincoln City Visitors & Convention Bureau spokesman. “The ocean currents bring these floats to the shore of Alaska, where they are collected. We offer these vintage floats each year as kind of a throwback from where our Finders Keepers program began.” On Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 50 solid red glass floats will be on the beach ready for discovery. On Feb. 15-16, there will be 100 pieces of glass art to find; a combination of contemporary floats, crabs, starfish and sand dollars. Finders Keepers is an annual promotion that began in 1997 designed to bring visitors to Lincoln City. The program continues through Memorial Day, May 26. “Float Fairy” volunteers place the glass art pieces. Floats are always dropped during daylight hours and can be found above the high tide line and below the beach embankment. Tourists continue to See FLOATS, Page B2 COURTESY PHOTOS

Along Garden Paths

By Karen Brown

Are we there yet? As I write today, snow is falling, blown in crazy patterns by the wind, and no one would imagine that we are anywhere near spring yet. However, we garden folks are always optimistic and know spring will come. Who will see the first daffodil? Even though there are earlier bulb flowers already blooming, such as crocus and snowdrops, somehow daffodils really do mean spring. I can see buds on a little clump by our driveway already. There are some varieties that will be in bloom by the time this column arrives in your newspaper, and others will still be in bloom the first of May. That’s a pretty respectable length of time, and we can be sure spring will be here sometime during that span. Although not native to North America, but rather to Europe and northern Africa, many members of the narcissus family, including daffodils, are very well suited to thriving with little attention here. The bulbs, which are best planted as soon as the nights cool in early fall, are completely winter hardy in most of the Pacific Northwest. When you see large drifts of them near where a homestead once was, you know they don’t need pampering. You may have larger, sturdier stems and blooms, however, if you give them some fertilizer right after bloom, or at fall planting time, and leave the foliage to mature and dry before you remove it. If you like to dig the bulbs so you can plant summer flowers in their place, at least let them continue to grow a month, or, better, six weeks, after blooms fade. Rarely is it necessary to supplement the natural rainfall with watering unless you’ve put your bulbs in a covered area, such as under the eaves. While they would rather not share their home with grass, they will tolerate the company if you don’t mow too early and remove their foliage. Daffodils pair nicely with spring’s primroses and early pansies, or let them sprout right through a low groundcover such as blue star creeper or ajuga. With companions, you won’t have a bare spot in your landscape when the daffies go to sleep for the summer. Some of my favorite ground covers for summer flower beds are those creepers often sold in the spring to use in hanging baskets. Most of them are annual, but I have been lucky some winters to find them re-growing in the spring. With this winter’s cold spells, I’ll be replanting, I’m sure. Let me suggest some that cover beautifully for the summer, though. I’ve had wonderful luck with petunia “Bubblegum.” which makes a low mound up to two feet wide. White bacopa in front of any color makes a lacy edge, and lavender brachyscome would be charming with its ferny foliage if the hundreds of pale lavender daisies never appeared. My favorite, though, is verbena “Tapien Blue”, which is a wonderful royal purple, to belie its name, and spreads out to three to four feet wide, hugging the ground and gently surrounding the base of taller shrubs and perennials. None of those can tolerate the rain and cold of daffodil season, but if you need to hide a bare spot over the daffodil bulbs, they’d be ideal all summer. And you certainly don’t need daffodils to make it worthwhile to include them in any summer planting, around flowers of almost any color. Enjoy the daffodils on your garden paths now, and think ahead for spring! Karen Brown can be reached at wkbrown@embarqmail.com.

provided in ORS 90.367. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from you rent payment. You may do this only for the rent you owe your current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any deposit or prepaid rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The new owner that buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out after 90 days or at the end of your fixed term lease. After the sale, you should receive a written notice informing you that the sale took place and giving you the new owner’s name and contact information. You should contact the new owner if you would like to stay. If the new owner accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the new owner becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise: • You do not owe rent; • The new owner is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf; and • You must move out by the date the new owner specifies in a notice to you. The new owner may offer to pay your moving expenses and any other costs or amounts you and the new owner agree on in exchange for your agreement to leave the premises in less than 90 days or before your fixed term lease expires. You should speak with a lawyer to fully understand your rights before making any decisions regarding your tenancy. IT IS
